Chénas is the smallest Beaujolais cru by surface area. This comes from a vineyard that Piron runs with the three Michelin-starred Lameloise restaurant in Chagny. The nine-hectare parcel comprises vines of more than 60 years of age on a steep, east-facing slope between 310 and 380 metres up. Soils of granite covered by quartz crystals lend a pronounced minerality. This to me is the most exciting wine of the entire tasting. A really quite full-on nose of spice, earth and prettiness is mirrored on a palate that seems to bring together notes of Cornas and Chambolle-Musigny. Supple, generous and vibrant, with graphite and deeply scented red fruits. A real stunner. Patrick Walsh, CellarHand 

Chénas the smallest of the Beaujolais Crus, should you be interested. Those that are, probably already know these things. Give this wine some time in the glass and it will surprise and delight. I moved it from a Chianti glass, to a Burgundy glass, and it was a good move. Ripe raspberry and roses, spice, wet earth and liquorice. Medium bodied, fine bones and slaty tannin, strawberry acidity, spicy red fruited flavours, long dusty almost chalky finish. Pretty and precise.
